    (Fred Rose)

    I've just been to heaven with someone so true
    I dreamed about mama last night
    She read me her Bible like she used to do
    I dreamed about mama last night.

    Mama used to never go to sleep at night
    Until all of us were in bed
    On party nights till we come home
    She often sat up and read.

    We little thought about it then
    For we were young and gay
    Just how much mama worried when
    Children were away.

    We only knew that she never slept
    When we were out at night
    That she waited just to know that we
    Were all gonna come home alright.

    Why sometimes we'd stayed away
    Till one or two or three
    And I used to think that mama could hear
    The turning of the key.

    For we'd step inside and she'd cal
    And we'd reply
    But we were all too young back then
    To understand just why.

    But up until the last one had returned
    Mama always kept a light
    She couldn't go to sleep until
    She kissed us all goodnight.

    I think mama just had to know that we were safe
    Before she went to rest
    She seemed to fear that the world might harm
    The ones that she loved the best.

    One time she told me when you're grown
    To women and to men
    I'll sleep the whole night through
    I bet I'll be different then.

    And so it seemed that night and day
    We knew a mother's care
    Then always when we got back home
    We'd find her waiting there.

    And then came the night that we
    Were called together round her bed
    The children're all with you now
    The kindly doctor said.

    And in her eyes there gleamed again
    That old time tender light
    That told that she's just been waitin'
    To know that we were all alright.

    She smiled that old familiar smile
    And prayed to God to keep
    Her children safe from harm throughout the years
    Then mama went to sleep.

    My dream is a treasure that I'll always keep
    I dreamed about mama last night...
